At forty-five, successful businessman Peter Robinson gave up his comfortable life in London to ordain as a Buddhist monk in Bangkok. But the new path he had chosen was not always as easy or as straightforward as he hoped it would be. In this truly extraordinary memoir, Phra Peter Pannapadipo describes his ten-year metamorphosis into a practicing Buddhist monk, while being initiated into the intricacies of an unfamiliar Southeast Asian culture. Phra Peter tells his story with compassion, humour and unflinching honesty. It's the story of a 'Phra Farang' - a foreign monk - living and practicing his faith in an exotic and intriguing land.
Phra Peter Pannadipo became a Buddhist monk at the age of forty-five but now administers SET - the Students' Education Trust he set up for novices who wished to continue their education but cannot afford to do so. As monks cannot earn money or fundraise themselves, he elected to disrobe temporarily.
